The year 2007 was a tumultuous one for World Wrestling Entertainment.

New stars rose to the top of the industry, championships changed hands and fans were engrossed by several explosive storylines. It was a year that saw the current President of the United States enter the ring for a major WrestleMania program with Vince McMahon, the rise of Hustle, Loyalty and Respect, and the return of WWE's savior.

It was also one rife with grief and uncertainty as one of the greatest tragedies to ever strike the sports entertainment world unfolded before the eyes of fans both on WWE programming and in mainstream media.

A soon-to-be Hall of Famer rose to the top of her profession by acquiring the first title of her career, and a Second City Saint began his journey to the top of a company he would publicly feud with years later.

From monumental clashes on wrestling's biggest stages to a World champion fans were eager to reject, there were many moments that helped 2007 leave an indelible mark on the world of professional wrestling.

Some ten years after the biggest stars in the industry captivated and engrossed audiences around the world, relive these moments that you will not believe turn one decade old this year.
